The Brighton & Hove Interfaith Contact Group has established a small interfaith choir. They would welcome further Jewish members in general, and for the annual Interfaith Service in particular, which will be held this
year on 20 November at B&H Progressive Synagogue. The choir meets fortnightly and is lead at least every other rehearsal by one of our two professional singer/musicians, Razia Aziz (Sufi Muslim background) and
Judith Silver (Jewish). On other occasions rehearsals are lead by a choir member. Choir members contribute £40 per term (or £5 per session) but no one is excluded for reasons of cost. We are a friendly, inclusive group.
It is not necessary to be able to read music and no previous singing experience is necessary. If you would like to come along, please contact: IFCG Secretary, Anthea Ballam (firstname.lastname@example.org or
just turn up at any of the sessions below.Autumn 2016 B&H Interfaith Choir

‘Bernhard Baron’ Entrepreneur, philanthropist, socialist and liberal Jew’ Presented by the celebrated local historian Godfrey Gould
As part of the important celebrations of the 250th anniversary of Jewish life in Brighton we are pleased to welcome Godfrey Gould to our synagogue. Godfrey was born in Newcastle upon Tyne and educated at the Universities of Durham, London and Sussex. He came to Brighton 50 years ago and it was his studies at Sussex especially which stimulated his interest in local history. He has written widely including a History of the B&H Jewish Welfare Board and co-edited the recently published Anthology of 250 years of local Jewish history. He is Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and an Honorary Life Chartered Companion of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
Bernhard Baron (1850-1929) too had an exciting and successful life and his name still lives on philanthropic circles. He said in a speech opening a convalescent home in Brighton “There is only one happiness in life, and that is to protect others and to give to others.”
Please join us and bring your friends to see our new synagogue and celebrate both our presence in Brighton and the contribution we make to the community.
Refreshments will be provided.
Easy access for the disabled with hearing loop for the hard of hearing.
Please contact the synagogue office for any further information.
